Psalms 8

Psalms 8

The Lord’s Greatness
For the director of music. On the gittith. A psalm of David.
1Lord our Lord,
your name is the most wonderful name in all the earth!
It brings you praise in heaven above.
2You have taught children and babies
to sing praises to you
because of your enemies.
And so you silence your enemies
and destroy those who try to get even.
3I look at your heavens,
which you made with your fingers.
I see the moon and stars,
which you created.
4But why are people even important to you?
Why do you take care of human beings?
5You made them a little lower than the angels
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6You put them in charge of everything you made.
You put all things under their control:
7all the sheep, the cattle,
and the wild animals,
8the birds in the sky,
the fish in the sea,
and everything that lives under water.
9Lord our Lord,
your name is the most wonderful name in all the earth!
